    In holster, out of holster. What is the difference in the two settings?

    In holster is when you have the phone inside your holster.
    When your phone is within the holster, it uses a bit less radio, tus saving battery life. (I just found that out. )

    Many, maybe all, of the RIM OEM holsters have a magnet in them that is detected by a switch in the BlackBerry. The OS monitors that switch to vary functions depending on whether the device is in or out of the holster. A common power saving technique is to suspend the device when it is in the holster. You can slso enable an auto-answer mode that answers the phone when you remove the BlackBerry from the holster.

    Idk if vibrate takes up a lot of juice or if it even makes a difference. I have my loud profile set to vibrate out of holster. Since I never really feel it vibrate when its in it. Maybe if it just rings and doesn't vibrate it doesn't use that much battery juice?

    There's a minimal difference in the amount of batthery required with and without the vibarate feature. I have my device to vibrate at all times, I can feel it in the holster and often do when I can't actually hear the tones. It is also handy for when I turn sound off and leave it on vibrate only which I often do in meetings, church, golf course and other times when I want it to be silent but I want to know that something has occurred.
